Submission Call: Fridge Flash–Fiction and Art by Kids

photo(5)SmokeLong Quarterly is excited to announce a new series called Fridge Flash—flash fiction written and illustrated by kids.

We are continuously struck by the wonderful spirit and imagination of children’s art and writing, and wanted to celebrate that by pulling those creations off the refrigerator and publishing them here.

Submissions are open as of now for this category. You can send us a story, or a piece of artwork that tells a story, or a combination of both, as long as it was completely conceived of and written by someone under the age of 12.

Check out our first Fridge Flash by Rexi, Age 5.


  • Stories, art or a combination of such must have been conceived of and written by someone under the age of 12. However, we would ask that an adult over the age of 18 please submit this work to us with permission to publish it online.
  • If the piece is a story, whenever possible we would like to see a photograph of the writing itself (scrawls, misspellings, colors and all). Where necessary, the parent or guardian can also provide a “translation” for us!
  • Please send all attachments as .jpg files.
  • Please include a short bio and photo of the child (if you prefer us not to use the child’s full name or photo, that’s fine, too—just let us know).
  • Stories we select will be published here on SmokeLong Quarterly‘s blog.
